Orca Whales Get Close to Hunt for Food

Occurred on January 1, 2020 / Whangarei, Northland, New Zealand Info from Licensor: "A friend and I decided to go fishing (targeting kingfish) at Busby head, Northland, New Zealand.

We had been fishing for around 3 hours, when a pod of 6 Northern, New Zealand Orca turned up hunting.

Little is known about the exact ecology of the NZ population of orca, but what is known, is that there is around 200 individuals and they specialize in hunting stingrays and sharks.

The 6 Orca worked as a group to surround a large stingray and force it up against the rocks at our feet.

The encounter lasted around 5 minutes, at which time the orca moved off towards peach cove.

This was a breath taking once in a life time, real life, Free Willy experience."
